My Friend Luda's Chemotherapy

My 46 year old childhood friend Luda who lives in Buzhanka, Ukraine needs your help.  She has been fighting an aggressive cancer since 2017 and it has spread into her lymph nodes.   She has been taking chemo over the last two years.  Many of you have been very generous with your donations.   Chemo, as you know, is not without its complications and as of winter 2019,  chemo treatments damaged her kidneys.  The current fundraiser is to help her care for her kidneys.  The doctors keep replacing drainage tubes.  She currently has tubes in both kidneys.  Luda cannot proceed with chemo until her kindneys are properly functioning.  

Luda doesn't have anyone to help her.  Luda's mom passed away when she was very young, age 9.  She has two daughters and one handsome grandson Serafim.  She is featured in this picture with her grandson.
Ukrainians do not have medical insurance to cover these costs.  Luda's salary was about $75 per month working as the main chef in a local restaurant. She is no longer able to work because chemo has taken a toll on her.   


Thank you for your generosity.
